Theiss, Nancy Stearns, Ed.; And Others
Seventy-four multidisciplinary activities for grades seven through twelve are contained in this revised edition of energy education lessons for Kentucky students. Section I helps students understand energy and the current crisis by studying laws which govern energy flow and using examples of how these laws illustrate stable energy utilization systems as found in nature. Section II provides instructions for building various workable models to illustrate the feasibility of alternative energy as a significant contribution to Kentucky's energy picture. Section III explains energy at home and in the schools in terms of the laws of thermodynamics, characteristics of systems of equilibrium, and the effect of particular kinds of energy on population. It addresses community issues including local sources of power, and local decision making and global issues including the impact of local energy decisions. The last section focuses on individual choices regarding lifestyle selections and their impact on the environment. It includes student worksheets. (Author/DC)
